We have launched a series of environmental initiatives to be implemented during 2021-2023
Renewable energy: about 77% of employees are already working at locations served by renewable energy (not including locations where we don't manage the electricity contract or where there is a single non renewable state energy supplier). In particular, 1,570 tonnes of CO2 saved in Italy in 2020 by purchasing renewable energy;
Thanks to Smart Working, 2,140 tonnes of CO2 emissions saved as a result of reductions in commuting;
Afforestation projects: we contribute to afforestation projects and acquisition of related carbon credits;
Greener vehicles: we are renewing our fleet of company vehicles thanks to the progressive insertion of hybrid / electric cars.
Plastic free: we aim at completing the plastic-free project launched in 2019 to eliminate single-use plastic within our sites, which includes the installation of filtered water fountains, the provision of reusable water bottles to employees and the elimination of plastic bottles from vending machines. In particular, In Italy, around 11 tonnes of plastic bottles were saved, equivalent to more than 28 tonnes of CO2 emissions avoided;
Paperless offices: one of our main goals is to reduce paper usage in all our offices worldwide and we already achieved a reduction of around 60% of printouts in 2020 compared to 2019, corresponding to about 19.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted;
RINA Carbon Neutral 2023: we are committed to neutralize our carbon footprint by 2023 thanks to a set of carbon reduction initiatives, and the acquisition of carbon credits for offsetting.
